I heard tonight a 13 year old girl was raped and at PRMC. I don't know where she is from, yet. How sad!

I feel safer in a major city than here on the Shore. Can't believe my grandparents used to leave their doors unlocked here. Times have changed dramatically since then.

Vandalism to cars and property off Camden reported this weekend also. The primitives are venturing further into peaceful civilized enclaves to prey on decent folk. It's coming.

I will tell you what is going on people don't give a rats ass who they vote for. Keep voting liberal Democrats and this is what you get. Just look at the worst places in the USA to live and they all have one thing in common.
